    Hey everyone,

    I'm planning a trip to visit a few schools on the East Coast of the US. So far, I have...


    I'm just visiting some good schools for graduate school. So, any recommendations that are roughly in the same area would be greatly appreciated. :biggrin:

    I don't know many American schools or there locations. :frown:

    edit... I am under the assumption that you are looking at grad school for Math.

    Near Princeton,
    Rutgers is about 20 mi away, and U. Penn (in Philadelphia) is 50 mi away.

    Near Harvard/MIT,
    Brandeis, Tufts, Northeastern, BostonU, etc..

    Near NYU and Columbia,
    Stony Brook is about 60 mi away. Cornell and Penn State are bit inland (about 200mi) from the NYC "coast".

    Thanks guys.

    I'll have to narrow down the list to 5 school probably. MIT and Princeton are for sure on the list though.

    And, yes this is for math.
